Synopsis:


Consumed by the daily demands of our practice and the life we live outside of it, we lose sight of what makes us really happy. The best way to avoid the ever increasing problem of burnout in our profession is to learn a system for cutting back hours while maintaining Profitable Practice Growth.

Recent studies show that many dentists are working into their 70s. Just how in the world do you think those Dentists will be able to hold up to the daily grind of dentistry IF they are working 4 or 5 days per week at an unsustainable pace? THEY'RE NOT! When dentists learn the S.M.A.R.T.E.R. system it gives them the FREEDOM that comes with having options.

All you need is a fresh perspective and a practical approach. It’s time to work less, make more, and enjoy practice again. Why? Because you deserve it. We all do. Dr. Griffin will be a featured speaker at Townie Meeting 2018 in Orlando.


Description of Speaker:
Dr. Griffin is a solo General Dentist who focuses on work/life balance to be present for his family as much a possible. In 2007 Dr. Griffin was feeling the effects of the daily grind on his personal and professional life. That led him to cut his Dental Workweek down from 5 days per week to 3 days per week starting in 2008. Much to his surprise, his practice grew by 20% that year even though he worked much less.

In 2009 Dr. Woody Oakes coined Dr. Griffin the ‘Most Efficient Man in Dentistry’ and featured him at his Fall Seminar. That exposure launched him into a secondary career as a dental speaker, sharing his message of working less and making more to dentists all across the country.

Besides speaking, Dr. Griffin loves to write. Some of his more notable accomplishments in that arena have been his 7 year stint as a columnist for The Profitable Dentist magazine, his publication of the article, “The Economics of Efficiency,” in Dental Economics, his co-authorship the book, The Secret of Success: Not Just for Dentists, with Dr. Howard Farran, Founder of Dentaltown and Dr. Sam Puri, co-Founder of CEREC Doctors. Dr. Griffin also publishes the Winning Dentist, which is available on all Apple and Android devices and hosts a podcast as a companion to that publication called The Dr. Chris Griffin Show, that was downloaded over 10,000 times during Season 1 in 2016.

Acquiring AGD PACE Certification in 2009, he has hosted dental CE events since with thousands of doctors in lecture attendance and over 100 doctors who have traveled to his office for hands-on workshops.
